About the HP Software Performance Tour
Everything is digital. Industries are transformed as products and services become “software-defined”. Competitors win by putting engaging applications in the hands of customers and insightful data in the hands of employees. This new style of business requires a new style of IT. Core IT to deliver the backbone of services to run business operations, and Fluid IT to be a partner in building brands, experiences, and loyalty. IT faces a challenge – how to be efficient and consistent, as well as experimental and innovative.
